Ungrateful kids!!

I'm so glad my kids are adults. I see all these terrible posts on FB and Twitter from kids cussing about the "terrible gifts" their **** parents got them.
If my kids were still young I would have access to all of their social media accounts and if they said one single thing like that, they wouldn't own anything electronic. They would be living like it was 1950

**** straight! Oh, if my future kids are EVER ungrateful for the blessings in their life, anything they get goes back to the store and they get to volunteer their time helping other less fortunate.

I'm lucky b/c everything in my life is a blessing and I know it! My family was homeless for about 8 years as I was growing up. You don't truly understand what you have until you have nothing. I wonder if that's why my wish list is always so small (Ha! More like empty lol!)

I was very proud of my daughter this year. Many of her FB friends posted pictures of wrapped gifts bragging about how many gifts were under their Xmas trees. She couldn't believe they bragging about the number of gifts. She thought they should be bragging about how many they were giving, not getting.

It is the generation of "give it to me and it better be what I want" for many kids. Being an old guy I will only say things sure seem different nowadays.

Unfortunately, consumerism is rampant in our society.

Kids just get too much these days! I thought I got my 9 year old niece/god daughter some nice things. I was able to get her more because I found some excellent deals. I got her aVera Bradley purse that i got an awesome deal on, jewelry making kit, the hardcover version of the Daring Book for Girls, and a hallmark Christmas ornament ( a fairy series that I get every year for her)... However my sister inlaw's family is nuts with gifts. My niece's great aunt got her the brand new top of the line iPhone 5! She's nine!!! I just can't compete nor do I feel I should have to!!

with our kids and also the grandkids it is always a case of " you get what you get" (with a smile)..and dont forget to donate to the Salvation army or give gifts to the gift trees in the shopping centres in return..

My youngest granddaughter - 8 years old - informed me yesterday that her mom was getting her a Kindle Fire. I said, "that's nice, so you can read a lot of books." She said, "yeah, right" and laughed. Ohkay, then. Apparently she broke her older sister's and has been whining for one of her own since, so of course, Mom is getting her one.

Yeah, that wasn't happening here.

I work at an elementary school, so I get to see the best and worst of our future.
The kids love giving presents - it can be a few cookie they helped make or an ornament they painted, a gift certificate or whatever.
As they hit 8 years of age, they become more materialistic (and self-centered - I thought it was a teenage thing).
